You are SPR holder yes ? Your son born here in SG ? Or you are registering him for 2nd Gen PR thru sponsor ?

If this is the case , do not sweat it . You'll be fine. ICA is asking family background to see who else in the family is applying PR for your spouse siblings OR who else is working here in your spouse family.
As long you are paying tax and wanting to set your roots here, you will be OK.

This is the first step of the many steps to be taken. Wait for about three months , then if no reply from ICA, give them a call.
Please note under 2nd Gen PR your son will need to serve NS when he turns 18.

That is good. You have a choice for PR for your son. I believe currently he is under LTSVP.

If there are any changes on your wife and yourself employment history, or anything that may help increase the chances of your spouse and son getting a PR, inform ICA immediately

Good Luck

:oops!: :oops:Sorry for the gender issue.
You will be fine. As your son is under DP now, he will get his LTSVP first then PR whichever comes earlier.

As a side note, the recent "refinement" of PR policy has almost tripled the wait for PRs.

A colleague of mine applied August of 2009 and had his card in hand by the end of November 2009.

I applied in early November 2009, and got my card in hand in August 2010.

For comparison, we are both single with no kids, similar in age, both from the same areas of the States, make similar salaries (almost identical) and while he's a salesman, I'm an engineer. So logically, the review process would have been almost identical.

The only difference was that my application came after the announcement of the "refinements" of the PR review process.

Word has it that they are holding off most PR approvals these days due to the upcoming elections. They dont want to upset the voters by publishing statistics showing a big growth in the number of new residents especially when there is a housing crunch.. :o

Where is the housing crunch? Most of SGers own their houses. Many of them own more than one. Looking at the number of new condo and DBSS flats launches that are happening there is going to be a huge glut of flats in 4-5 years. Till then, yeah, ride the tide.
